HOPE’s Give Local Success Story

HOPE set a pie-in-the-sky goal of $17,500 and expected great things from this community-wide event! A heartfelt thank you to our community for going over and above to support HOPE during Give Local Lancaster 2019.  A combination of online giving; direct donations at our Teaching Kitchen Sneak Peak event along with prizes and matching funds from local businesses and the HOPE board resulted in a record total for HOPE of $19,021!!!

One of the days greatest achievements was the engagement of current donors, renewed interest from lapsed donors and gaining new-to-HOPE donors. In fact, 51% of the day’s donations came from first-time donors to HOPE. This day truly was a group effort that will help us continue to provide client-centered programs that give our neighbors HOPE when unexpected emergencies arise! Together we can do great things for Lancaster County!

At HOPE, our aim is to help people in our community who are struggling, get back on their feet. We help individuals and families experiencing a short-term, financial crises with rent, utility payments and food. Monthly food supplements are available for low-income Senior Adults, and long-term counseling and mentoring is available for individuals experiencing a temporary set-back. The goal is always financial stability so individuals and families in our community can experience a HOPE-FILLED FUTURE!
